NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY P.S.A. FOR CREATING DYNAMIC TEST APPARATUS ENABLING CRASH SIMULATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH PROGRAMMED LAWS

The originality of the Domange-Jarret company technique is based on the compression of visco-elastic fluids (gums, silicones) by appropriate mechanical or hydraulic means. The fundamental principle of this technique consists of primarily using the pasty viscosity of this fluid, which is far greater than other fluids, as a shock absorbing function. Its compressibility characterizes a spring or accumulator function. A statement is presented in terms of performance and reliability being the main advantages of using this technique.
